Problem ID: 0049149
Step 1. Observe that the Knight is threatened and move it to a safe location with check.
Step 2. Notice that the two Bishops are en prise and line up the Rook to attack them.
Step 3. Capture one Bishop and add a protector to the Knight.
This problem would be even better if it proceeded three moves further - 4. Re1 Nf4 5. Rxe5 Nd3+ 6.Ke3 Nxe5.
You're right, spkfsa.
yes but then the puzzle might get too big, they can just make another puzzle starting at this position
nope, i've seen a few 8 move puzzles, three more would be well within an acceptable number of moves
Whoa, you're right, there is a knight fork threatening in the next few moves... Nice observation, but it shouldn't be part of this puzzle since then there would be two tactics you'd need to correctly solve to get credit for one tactics problem.
I saw a 11 move problem 1ce
You're so right about extending the tactic.
party in the USA
Why not play an entire GAME as a tactic?!?!?
I'm pissed with this problem.
Didn't get it..I thought I might have had more than just to take a bishop...
i lost it
Moved the rook to f8 on the second move.
Agree it should continue until the knight fork.
If you can't see that further down (and I couln't!) then this is not a relevant tactic since one would lose the avantage when Re1 triple atacks the black knight.
